Jimmy Carter – A Call to Action


I haven’t been able to find any discussion questions for our book this month. We will have to use the generic questions for nonfiction book discussion.  I wanted to share the TEDtalk of President Carter


Catching up – 5 Book update


I need to apologize for my lack of post over the past several months. Time seemed to get away from me. Just to catch up here are the books we read and discussed.

February: Big Little Liars by Liane Moriarty  Big Little Lies discussion

We very much enjoyed it and had fun discussing it, We related it to our real lives in terms of all the characters of the book. We also liked how it unfolded.

March: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline  Orphan Train Discussion Guide

This book gave us a great discussion about the history of the Orphan Train.

May – June: 11/22/1963 by Stephen King 11/22/63 discussion guide

The biggest book ever! Many of us who are not regular Stephen King fans enjoyed this historical sci-fi novel. Plus we were quite proud when we  actually finished it.

July : Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple   Bernadette Discussion guide

Some of us didn’t care for this read as much as others did. But It succeeded in keeping it light for the summer.

August : Stella Bain by Anita Shreve

Once again we found a book that gave us a history lesson along with it. We discussed our lack of information about World War 1 history.

So now we are caught up. Again I apologize about the time passing without posts.
